On 8 September 2021, the reality struck close to home for Greg Partington, the Founder of the Hello Project, when he found his mother, Mary, lying on her kitchen floor. She’d suffered a debilitating stroke to the left side of her brain. Distressed, hurt and unable to move, she lay there alone for 20 hours. Not through any lack of care, but there were signals that all was not well. Her home lights were blaring all night as was the TV. She died in hospital 8 days later.
In loving memory of Mary Josephone Partington.
